JFK Memories & A Bride Doll Named Jackie ~ A Legacy Story

JoyChristmas1962

JFK Memories & a Bride Doll Named Jackie I was a few days away from being six years old when JFK died. I came home from school on the bus. The shades were pulled down, my mom was in tears, and the TV on. As I write this, I’m a few days away from being […]

This blog post is about the consequences of teenage sex and abortion – it is not intended for young readers.   The following is fiction based on fact. I took a little bit of this and a piece of that from real-life experiences people have shared with me and, wove them into a story. I know […]

Learn how you can buy these books NOW!   To Protect and Serve by Staci Stallings “I promise concern for others, and a willingness to help those in need,” Jeff Taylor said as he stood, hands clasped behind his back, shoulder-to-shoulder with 28 of Houston’s finest.

Contemporary Romance Raspberries and Vinegar by Valerie Comer Josephine Shaw: complex, yet singleminded. A tiny woman with big ideas and, some would say, a mouth to match. But what does she really know about sustainable living as it relates to the real world? After all, she and her two friends are new to farming. […]

What is an infertile woman supposed to do with a woman who has chosen abortion more than once? Write a novel? You’ve got to be kidding! She wanted banana cream pie. She hated bananas. I looked at her and the truth splashed across my mind. In the car I asked her the normal “first” questions […]

Today’s featured poet is from the heart of my friend Jeanne. Over the years she has blessed me. She does it yet again today in this poem. . .  (Photo owned by Jeanne Doyon) Come Walk With Me ~ by Jeanne Doyon Walk with me Through shady paths Flower strewn gardens Climbing the gentle verdant […]

Today’s featured poet is Priscilla Kramer. We’ve known each other a long time – we met when I was 15 and  in 10th grade and she was quite a bit younger. We went to the same church and Christian school. That was 40 years ago. One thing I always think of when she crosses my […]

A couple of months ago, I was enjoying a morning with Mom and she asked me if I had a copy of a specific picture. It was of her and me – when I was brand new. She was feeding me a bottle. “It’s my favorite picture of us,” she said smiling. “I have it […]

Not all the chapters I wrote ended up in Rain Dance. Practical editing played a big part in that, but there was  more. Some of it just hurt too much at the time. The first part of this chapter is real – it’s my dream about the little girl we hoped to adopt, but whose […]

After a terrible storm, I walked through our yard and picked up branches. Under a tall oak tree, I saw a tiny nest made from thin blades of grass. The fragile abode had been blown about by the strong winds but was still intact. It was lined with long, stiff horsehair from Holly across the […]

This is an excerpt from my latest release: Under His Wings ~ Lessons Learned From God While Watching the Birds. . .  A wren landed on the railroad tie at the edge of my wildflower garden while I was weeding. I had dropped a small pile of dirt that was clumped to the roots of […]

Here’s an excerpt for your from Under His Wings ~ Lessons Learned from God While Watching the Birds. I hope you enjoy the story! This is the arbor and house in the winter – it’s the only photograph I could find although I know I have others. One spring morning a wren fluttered around me […]

He Loves Me Not is coming together – really. Sixteen very raw chapters are written. I care about all my characters except one. I think the storyline works – for the most part. Ideas are flowing, and some of them are finding their way  on to the pages. But, my cogs are slower than […]
